Time recalls pedals

Recent RXS and RXE models may come apart
Pedal manufacturer Time Sport International is recalling several models of its road bike clipless pedals. The affected models are RXS Titan Carbon, RXS Carbon, RXS and RXE (black or grey pedal body) sold between October 2004 and July 2006.
The white pedal body RXS World Champion is not affected by this recall, nor are pedals that have a gold dot on the underside of the pedal body just inside where the bearing cap is mounted to the pedal body. 2007 model pedals that do not have the racing clip are also not subject to this recall.
After eight incidents in which riders sustained minor injuries, Time has found that the pedal's bearing cap can unscrew from the pedal body, allowing the body to separate from the axle.
For full details of the recall, see the website of UK importer RJ Chicken. US readers should check out the details at Time Sport USA.
